Is Your Your Cell Phone Stealing Your Life Force?

Tim Chrisco, Guest Writer

Your life force is your energy, often referred to as Qi, Prana, or Life Force. There are many names for it, and it is absolutely essential to life.

Many people don’t believe in energy because they can’t see it or touch it. Interestingly though, most everyone feels energy, even if they are not recognizing it for what it is. It’s easy to explain off those feelings as one thing or another, but make no mistake about it, energy is all around us. If it weren’t, then you and I wouldn’t be here. Most people believe that life is nourished and sustained by other ‘physical objects’, such as food, yet, this is not actually how life maintains itself. Energy is the substance that sustains life. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, etc.  do not sustain life, it is the energy inside of these substances that enables life to exist here. Our bodies are in essence biological machines which run on energy, not dirt. Without energy, there is no life.

Energy is flowing and moving around us all the time, if it were not so, we would not be alive. As a conscious, energetic being you have a unique way of interacting with energy, and your mind consciously controls your energy. When your mind is placed on things outside of you like objects, ideas, events, or people, then your energy leaves your body and follows your thoughts. Conversely, when your mind focuses on your body, you attract and deepen your energy (life force) within your physical structure. This is the essence of many energetic physical arts, such as the ancient practice of Qi Gong.

What does all this have to do with your cell phone?

In the Ted video below Ms. Case suggest that the contents of your cell phone and your computer are actually extensions of your mind. I agree with her somewhat, for, as I mentioned above, where your mind goes, your energy follows. When you call someone on your phone your mind travels and connects with that person.

“Technology is evolving us, as we become a screen-staring, button-clicking new version of homo sapiens. We now rely on ‘external brains’ (cell phones and computers) to communicate, remember, even live out secondary lives. But will these machines ultimately connect or conquer us? “ -Amber Case

If your mind drives your energy and your cell phone puts your mind on objects outside of your physical body, then, is your cell phone stealing your energy? In a sense, yes, especially so if you  become obsessed with these devices, and your need to feel connected to them grows out of proportion. Under this principle, it is quite possible you are giving your energy away with these devices when you could be holding on to it.

Cell phones are neither bad nor evil, as they are very useful devices. They simply ought to be used correctly, or more specifically, you need to be conscious of how your mind thinks of them (and their contents). Understanding the relationship between your thoughts and your energy is important if you want to keep your mechanical devices and other parts of your life in balance. Maintaining balance is very important for many things in life, especially for your health and happiness. When your relationship to objects that are supposed to make life better becomes out of balance you can experience a disturbance in your emotional state, your mental state, and/or your physical state.

The most important thing to remember is that you are the director of your thoughts and your life force. Once you have an understanding of how important your energy is, and a basic understanding of how it works to your benefit and to your detriment, then it’s much easier to place the correct amount of emphasis (energy) on the devices that you use in your daily life.

    My only comment is that I thought it was a very brilliant article and it made such a lot of good sense. Thank you!

    When they performed the first heart transplant, I started to really get concerned as to how they were going to reattach the Heart Meridian, or can you use the old one-but where is the darn thing? 2013, and some you still worrying about chi. In T.C.M.”bad chi” used to ENTER thru acupoints, and hide in the bodies caves just waiting to give you the flu,or something equally important, and was known as the Divine Wind -same with WW2 suicide Japanese Fighter planes. The body produces it”s own energy. See, that’s why we eat and it goes thru the CREB cycle ans there is no need for mysterious forces that enter your body when you bend right. I checked with my M.D.,and my caves are clear,

      Good point. My dad’s heart has been beating with the aid of a battery pacemaker for several years and, no doubt about it, It’s extended the years and quality of his life. I’m skeptical that TCM would have done better. Anything that man creates can be used in a positive way with some common sense. Cell phones can, in my opinion, actually help improve your focus. I’m willing to bet that the majority of gurus or enlightened ones living in today’s modern society use cell phones regularly. Don’t, however, text or use a hand held device while driving. That’s one of the few times a cell phone could really steal your life force.

      Sounds like texting to me.

    This is something I’ve already considered, which is why I haven’t yet owned a cell phone. I also refuse to have WiFi in my house, with much remonstrances from my tenant. I practice Qi Gong daily and feel all the better for it. I can’t help but think that my Qi Gong practices and meditations would be compromised or hindered by having excess cell phone/wifi filling my house and disturbing my Qi. I even make sure my computer is turned off whenever I sit down to meditate or practice Qi Gong.
